Hi... Steroid therapy are considered to reduce the inflammation which can occur is certain lung disorders like asthma, restrictive lung disorders and other non pyogenic ( bacterial) inflammatory conditions... It can worsen pyogenic inflammatory conditions.. Hence an evaluation of your symptoms after starting steroid therapy would be need to know the reason for your problems... See a doctor for the same purpose..
